Work with us

At Peak District Music Centres we are now working to increase our player numbers and to rebuild our structure of ensembles in the wake of the pandemic. Required, as soon as possible, is an Ensemble Director (ED) to direct either the Beginner or the Training String ensemble.


Both ensembles currently rehearse on Fridays in Buxton: Beginners 4.45-5.30pm and Training 5.15- 6.30pm though there may be flexibility for slight movement. The ideal candidate will be well connected locally and there will be an opportunity to undertake additional recruitment activity.


We pay £30 per hour, including for 30 minutes prep time, so the weekly pay is £37.50 for the Beginner ED and £52.50 for the Training ED.


This work is classed as having substantial access to children and applicants will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check as part of any recruitment process. A DBS check is a record of a person’s criminal convictions and cautions, carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service. Any information shown will be used to ascertain a candidate’s suitability for role.
